Create a gratitude jar
Being grateful for all the good things in our lives can help us feel happier but sometimes we forget to remember how lucky we are. A gratitude jar can help us focus on the things that we are grateful for. Here’s how it works. Place a jar in a central location in your house with some scrap pieces of paper and a pen next to it. When you or other people in your family think of something they are grateful for, have them write it on a piece of paper and put it in the jar. Every once and a while, empty the jar and read all of your thankful thoughts together as a family.
